Topic: Using old bricks for construction

I have a old house (25 years old) built on a 500 sq yds plot. I intend to demolish the house and build a new one on that site.
My question is - should I use the old bricks. Can the malba be also used for filling the foundation and raising the plinth level. Or, is it better to use new bricks etc?
Please advice

The bricks are perfect to use for a strong foundation, if I were you I would use new bricks just to be sure that t he bricks have are still in good condition.
